Veteran actress Dora Bryan dies
Actress Dora Bryan, who was known for roles in TV's Last Of The Summer Wine and classic British movies including A Taste Of Honey, has died aged 91.
The star, who was still performing into her 80s, had been living in a nursing home in Sussex in recent years as her health deteriorated.
Her friend and manager David Hill said: "She was razor-sharp with an incredible brain. You were always aware when you were with her that she had been a big star. Dora was very quick-witted and very funny."
Bryan was known to TV viewers for the five years she spent playing Ros Utterthwaite in BBC1 sitcom Last Of The Summer Wine in the twilight of her career, bowing out in 2005.
